The Room of Opportunity

What is the Room of Opportunity? 
This is the place where dreams are made, prizes are won, and funds are raised for our favorite charities!

Are you creative and like to make things look pretty?  We are looking for basket assemblers for the Thursday of convention weekend.  Please let us know if you would like to volunteer!

Our Room of Opportunity is based solely on donations made by generous people like you, and we appreciate each and every donation!  How do we say thank you?  Prizes of course!!

We will be tracking everything donated throughout the year. For every $20 donated, you will receive one chance for an exclusive, high value raffle prize.  This will be an accumulative calculation throughout the year.  For example: if one person sends eight $5 items and someone sends one $40 item, both people will receive 2 (two) raffle tickets for the exclusive on-site raffle. 

We will also be giving one lucky person a $20 Amazon gift card each month!  Each person that donates every month will be entered to win!  This prize is not based on dollar value, will reset at the beginning of each month, and everyone that donates will get one chance in the monthly drawing.

How can you donate?

The easiest way to donate – Amazon of course!  Send something from our wish list!  And have it shipped directly to us!  Items off the wishlist should have an option to ship directly to Beth.  Please be sure to include a gift receipt, so you can get credit for the donation! 

You can also purchase items from any of your other favorite shopping sites (Etsy, Zulily, Target, Walmart, Bass Pro, Margaritaville… etc.) too!  If you choose to donate from sites other than Amazon, please send an email to Beth at raffles@nerphc.org or through Facebook (www.facebook.com/beth.berube.5) to obtain the address and let us know what is being sent.

Old School Shopping When you are out shopping, and see something perfect, grab it!  Contact either Beth or your local ambassador to schedule a transfer of goods!

Bring a completed basket to the convention! Just a few guidelines for completed baskets.

  • Each basket should have a value of no less than $40
  • Baskets need to be fully assembled, prior to drop off.  
  • All expiration dates MUST be more than 60 days after convention.
  • All basket items must be new/unused.
  • Local is always better! Try to support your local businesses or ask for a donation! 
  • Please let Beth know (at raffles@nerphc.org) PRIOR to convention if you will be bringing a completed basket, so we can have some space saved for you!

Club Baskets
We all know the difficulties of collecting for the club baskets right before convention.  This year we would like to give each club the option of either donating a traditional club basket or donation of six (or more) baskets for the Room of Opportunity.  This is completely at the discretion of your club as to which you would prefer.  The idea behind this, is rather than your club spending lots of time and money right before convention, it would spread out those resources throughout the year.  Making it easier for everyone.

If you choose a traditional club basket, we will need the following information from your club.

  • How much space your club will need?
  • Do you need a table?
  • Will you need electricity?

If you choose to send 6+ baskets, please follow the below guidelines for multiple baskets.
Each basket should have a value of no less than $40

  • All contents and total value must be listed on each basket.
  • Please try to have all baskets dropped off in the raffle room no later than 5:00pm, Thursday of Convention.
  • Baskets need to be fully assembled, prior to drop off.
  • All expiration dates on food MUST be more than 60 days after convention.
  • All basket items must be new/unused.
  • Local is always better! Try to support your local businesses or ask for a donation!

Please let Beth know your club’s decision as soon as possible, so we can plan for the space you need.

Thank you for all your help with the Northeast Regional Parrot Head Convention!  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
